Detroit School System Shuts Off Drinking Water Due to High Lead Levels
HEADLINEAUG 30, 2018
In education news, the Detroit school system has shut off drinking water to all of its schools after tests found elevated levels of lead in 16 schools. The announcement comes just before school starts for 40,000 students in Detroit.
If there's elevated lead levels in the drinking water in 16 schools, how about all the rest of the water in Detroit, period??? What about the water used for cooking, bathing, washing hair, washing dishes, etc? How many years have there been elevated levels of lead anywhere in Detroit and elsewhere??
I think folks will get upset when everyone just starts dropping dead like flies everywhere; then it'll be too late. The Supreme Most High is getting tired of all our shit. A rude awakening's a comin'!!!!!! We all look alike DEAD!! Race is not an issue!!! Skeletons are all WHITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I agree sista Norland. I think about that all the time and even in Cali-Compton has a problem with lead-base water. You would think in one of the most developed countries in the world.....water would be our least concern. But! It is and this administration cares less. No one has said a thang about it. And if my president was on watch? They would have worn him out over this obvious neglect to the American people. Bottom line? We have to go old school again and take care of ourselves like we used to...until we can get a handle of who is in charge in this nation that care about its people. We have skilled folks who know how to do this stuff....they need their humanity to do the right thing anyway....and not look for the govt. Cuz there? No help. So it's up to us to save our own lives. But!
We're going to end up saving ourselves anyway. We've always ended up saving ourselves since we've been in this joint. Wait until the bullets start flying between black and white all over this land, it ain't gonna be cute!! That's what the Orange Tangerine wants; to make the joint "white again" that's never been "white" from Jump Street.
Old Turtle Island's not the same. No fun any more. Can hardly go anywhere without getting a bullet in the ass, getting rolled over by cars, sending Coperoos into a tizzy because you're music's too loud or too many of you came out of a party at the same damn time, the same damn skin color, laughing too loud or possibly arguing at each other. Expect a bullet to the brain or in the back!!
All our singers are dying; the music sucks, entertainers are nasty as hell; TV's boring. I sit in front of the sucker for 10 minutes, then I'm snoring; waking up at 4:00 a.m. wondering where the time went. Don't blame it on my age; that ain't it!! It's either 24 hours of Tangerine Man or some murder mystery or horror show. I find commercials funnier than anything else displayed as TV "shows".
Thank The Most Supreme High for this contraption, you and YouTube. Makes the days worthwhile, after all.
You're soooooooooooo right sista Norland. I spent the better part of yesterday catching up with Iyanla Fix my life. I watch it because I am amazed how some of our young black women continue to having children without thinking and without "help" from the men who impregnate them. It also shows how many black women are still being raped as children and never tell. This is why they behave the way they do but are told not to tell and in doing so it festers inside of them stealing their childhood AND their womanhood. Even the mothers of these women have been sexually abused as children......we as black people need to take a pause and really look at what is happening to our culture. We have to stop dancing, smoking weed and drinking to observe how we are responsible for the brokenness inside our race. No one is to blame but us. Why? Cuz many of us refused to talk about it. And we NEED to talk about it cuz that is the ONLY way to release the historic pain. Otherwise, the pattern will continue to repeat generation after generation. But!
Koco, I can't watch young black women these days, because they're too busy trying to look like young white women. False eyelashes, too much makeup, weaves north, south, east and west on their backs and above their titties. Too much for me!! Believe me, I catch holy hell from my daughter with my views, but they are what they are.
When I was coming up, we made do with what we had and did a damn good job of it and looked good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No phony shit for my generation!!!!!!!!!!!!! Every now and then someone from my mother's generation dyed their hair as red as black hair would go (sort of maroon) and that was it!!!!!! They wore their OWN HAIR!!!!! If homegirl had only peppercorns on her head, they were combed and styled and she kept on steppin'. She had RESPECT!!
